Archaeology Notes

NG87NW 4 814 753

The old Temple House at Flowerdale (NG 814 753) where Alastair Breac (alive in the early 17th century) seems to have sometimes lived, is a modernised dwelling. 'No doubt a great part of the wall is ancient.' The present occupier, a head-gardener and forester, says that the style of the windows and entrance when he first remembers the house, gave probability to the tradition that it was originally a church or temple of worship. It may have been the residence of the priest or priests of Gairloch church before the Reformation.

J H Dixon 1886.
